At First Tee — Canton, we help kids and teens discover what’s inside them, guide them to strengthen it and mentor them to put it into action in everything they do.
“Growing up my plan for the future was always to get an athletic scholarship and go to college. I did accomplish that, but unfortunately due to some challenges, I had to drop out of school. I then went on to join the Army so I could get back in school. First Tee – Canton was always there for me when I was struggling with challenges in life and taught me to always persevere. Because of First Tee – Canton, I believe I wouldn’t be where I am today.” – Sierra Townsend, First Tee – Canton alumna
By integrating our life skills curriculum with the game of golf, we are creating active learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence and resilience, which is more important now than ever.
